Additional Information: 

Drewrys was a brand of Canadian beer that originated in 1877. Drewry's slogan and claim to fame was that the beer was "more flavor, less filling, more fun!" and also that a can of Drewrys would float in water, rather than sinking to the bottom of a bucket or tub. The Drewrys Mountie, and his faithful horse, were front and center on the earliest Drewrys cans. Although the Drewrys brand discontinued production in 1972 because of stiff competition, brand made a comeback in 2014 in the Chicago area.
